New Book! The Past, Ineffable by Toti O'Brien


As he slowly deciphered
the old script,  he took
pleasure in every word.
How they formed
in his mouth, the
nouns, the adjectives.

He rolled blue butterfly
on his tongue and a taste
of aniseed lingered
while a window
of cobalt burst
within forest green.

When he said volcanoes
the universe flipped
upside down. He heard
barking of dogs trapped
underground. Moonlight
glare seeped in.
-Toti O'Brien
